Every so often the Icon Garage Team gets together for a little meeting of the like-minded. A cartridge and shell filled day of spent primers and sore shoulders. Such was the case last Friday. Just outside the Slabtown Survival Compound we met up with Grant aka 'Mack Bolan' for a 2nd Amendment discussion. After a hearty truck stop breakfast of eggs, bacon, and dreamcatchers we mobilized to our secret firing range. Cases were unloaded, targets erected, and magazines emptied. In the end, everyone left with all their fingers still attached and $358 worth of Winchester and Wolf were uselessly dispatched into the dirt. All in all it was a good day. The Constitution is a beautiful thing.

There's a new sherriff magazine in town - Throttle Nation. Nice to see some fresh glossy blood, especially given that the current economic climate has not been kind to the print world. Pick one up and check out the article on Icon's very own - Nick 'Apex' Brocha. Throttle Nation is available at Borders, Barnes & Noble, and Hastings.

Some outtakes from the '06 Icon photoshoot starring LA's moto legend - Chopper Dave. If you like real chops, moto history, prop driven aircraft, Bardahl oil, and most of all - nekkid girlz check out his blog - Loud Fast Rules. If you don't like nekkid girlz most definitely do not.
It was either this or 'GRIPN TIGHT'

For those of you just joining the Icon Blog we welcome you. For those of you already following our daily moto-centric commentary welcome back. We're starting April off with an animated short from the mind of our very own Lukas. Set in the steamy underworld of Slabtown it chronicles the Metal God's rise to fame...kinda. Even if it doesn't really explain the Metal God at least it's entertaining and worth three minutes of your company's time. As always stay tuned to the Icon blog for daily updates, behind the scenes drama, special product releases, and general industry irreverence. Better yet - become a follower and add the Icon stream of digitus to your already overwhelmed infofeed... we'll send you a sticker in return.
